Can we say 0.0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 equal to zero. · 1 year, 10 months ago

This would only approach 1. Any negative power would be less than 1.

So technically, $$2^{-\infty} = 0$$. But then again, $$-\infty$$ isn't a number. · 1 year, 10 months ago

But still if we say that 2^-100000000000 it is zero. · 1 year, 10 months ago

No, it's still not absolute zero. · 1 year, 10 months ago

So, finally we conclude that anything raise to the power any integer is not zero. · 1 year, 10 months ago

0 raised to the power of any positive real is 0.

You need to qualify what "anything" refers to. Staff · 1 year, 10 months ago

No, that's the law of logarithm. · 1 year, 10 months ago

No. · 1 year, 10 months ago

No. Because 0 is not a number. · 1 year, 10 months ago

Because 0 is not a number.

Are you sure? xP

I'm guessing you mean infinity? · 1 year, 10 months ago
